A lot of great insights into how different types of food are prepared, with tasting of great food and with background history for these foods provided. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes tasting new things and eager to find out more about Middle East culture and food.

Dear Nikolao, Thank you for choosing to do our Middle Eastern food tour, and we're so pleased to know you would recommend this to others! Our goal is to combine delicious food with its broader historical and cultural context -- and it's great to see that this came through on our tour with you. We hope we'll have a chance to serve you on our other tours as well in the future! Scrumptiously yours, Frying Pan Adventures
